Minnesotans looking to enter or exit farming have two new resources available. The Minnesota Department of Agriculture’s (MDA’s) Jim Ostlie says the program puts together teams to help farmers navigate their way through farm transition and succession planning, whether it be…

“A farm that includes crops and livestock or in a home or if it just happens to be with land they can offer the resources that can assist in the planning process.”

Ostlie says the program covers a variety of topics from property law and establishment and dissolution of partnerships to leases and other contracts, as well as psychological or spiritual support. For more information, visit the MDA’s website.
